PREVIEW: Alan Carr's Epic Gameshow - Play Your Cards Right Celebrity Special

Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow returns for a brand-new series, bringing uproarious, nostalgic fun back to Saturday nights on ITV.



Once again Alan Carr reboots some of the nation’s all-time favourite gameshows - Play Your Cards Right, The Price is Right, Take Your Pick, Strike It Lucky, Bullseye and a new addition for this series, Name That Tune.


Plucky contestants will be hoping to win big-money or top-of-the-range prizes, as they battle to get to those all-new epic endgames, in another run of nail-biting shows filled with family fun.


Once again hosted by inimitable funnyman Alan Carr, the 11 x 60’ series from Talkback, a Fremantle label, will launch with a celebrity special of the legendary Play Your Cards Right. The big-name couples vying to win the jackpot for their charity of choice include Harry & Sandra Redknapp, Nicola Adams & Ella Baig, Martin & Shirlie Kemp and Catherine Tyldesley & Tom Pitfield.


This will be followed week-by-week with the return of all the UK’s favourite gameshows from the first series, with contestants from the general public taking on The Price is Right, Take Your Pick, Strike It Lucky, Bullseye and Play Your Cards Right. However, this time a set of plucky contestants will also put their musical knowledge to the test on new addition and beloved classic, Name That Tune.


This initial run of eight episodes concludes with another celebrity special and will then be followed by three more specials to air later in the year. Throughout all eleven nail-biting shows filled with family fun, contestants will be hoping to win big-money or top-of-the-range prizes, as they battle to get to those all-new epic endgames.


Alan Carr said: “I am so super-excited to be back with my Epic Game show, frankly its nice to be just out the house, but to start the run with 'Celebrity Play Your Cards Right’ is just what we need right now. A perfect storm of nostalgia, family fun and with the chance to win 30,000 pounds for charity - I dare you not to be on the end of your sofas shouting Higher and Lower!”


Alan Carr's Epic Gameshow returns Saturday 3rd April at 8:30pm on ITV.
